candidates who could carry even massachusetts. think eisenhower, think ronald reagan. well, lately, the party has been running candidates who can't get much closer to the northeast than ohio. and not even that, the last two times. it's a whole part of the country, the northeast, with lots of people living in it that's become foreign territory. last night, i watched the u.s. house of representatives become hurricane aid. i now call the party of guns that were people. its instinct is to fight for guns. last night, it was aid for the northeast. does anyone out there think it would stop there? the move is to increasingly vote for guns, vote for war, vote against people. why? i cannot figure. to paraphrase an old saying, guns don't vote, people do. we've seen the horror of crazed killers with semi-automatic weapons. we still haven't caught sight of those darn helicopters. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with e schultz starts right now. >> this is our first task as a society. keeping our children safe. this is how we will be judged. >> the president lays it all on the line for ne
's post columnist and msnbc contributor e.j. deon. >> great to be here. >> thanks, e.j. ronald reagan was worn some as the 40th president of the united states ushering in an era of limited government and the rise of the modern conservative movement. yesterday barack obama, the 44th president of the united states, was sworn in for his second term. the moment that will define progressive politics m years to come and one that symbolizes a renewed faith and the power of the american government. needless to say, it was a day several decades in the making. >> for the first time in history government, the people said, was not our master. it is our servant. >> government is not the problem, and government is not the solution. we, the american people, we are the solution. >> the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sapp our nation. they strengthen us. they do not make us a taker of nags. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> as he made a forceful case for economic equality and the social safety net pr
resemblance to the party of ronald reagan that would have responded to powell's concerns with an all hands on deck effort to win the war back. it's big enough to win back the white house in 2016. and that's, to the point, we have a more and more bifurcated congress, not the congress you served in. there were 49 votes, only 49 votes for sandy relief last night. that says a lot. there were more than 49 votes for gulf damage and repair after katrina. >> colin powell is a moderate, but i'll tell you what, i understand why ronald reagan reached out to colin powell and saw him as a future leader of the republican party when he let him run the joint chiefs. we need moderate republicans like colin powell on our side. we've run him off. we've run a lot of other moderate republican voters off, and if you want to win 49 states again like ronald reagan won in 1984, if we want to win the landslides that george h.w. bush won, we're going to have to have a much bigger tent, and we can't be the party of todd aiken or richard murdoch or sharon ankle or christine o'donnell. republican extremism in the repub
" this past weekend he did define himself as a republican. a guy that ronald reagan picked to be his chairman of his joint chiefs. colin powell, i know, has supported for the past two terms, has supported barack obama. i'm glad, though, the guy still considers himself a republican and i want to figure out how to get him back under the big tent because as i write in the column you're talking about that's the first thing reagan would have done. reagan would have looked at colin powell okay how can i get that guy on my team. we haven't been thinking that way lately. we both to think that way again. you know what? it's not about ideological tests at the end of the day it's about winning. that's what reagan understood. he didn't win 49 states by accident. >> we have to be the party of solutions. one of the things troubling me right now, look i disagree with barack obama's fiscal and economic policy. i have for four years and i reckon i'll disagree with it for a while longer. i'll tell you this. the guy goes out and gives this gun control, safety speech today. okay. you don't have to agree with eve
president embraced the second amendment, made reference to the creator, invoked the name of ronald reagan, and still comes out of the thing as a socialist who -- >> a secret muslim socialist who wants to take your guns. >> perhaps the most disturbing trend since the newtown shootings has been the rise of conspiracy theorists who claim the whole thing was a hoax, part of an elaborate plan by the government to provoke enough anger to warrant rounding up your guns. websites, blogs, youtube videos have attacked the veracity of officials and official accounts of tragedy. they allege many of the people were actually actors. that the parents didn't show enough emotion and must be in the conspiracy. some claim if the shooting actually happened, there must have been more than one shooter and the government was involved somehow. one 30-minute truther video on youtube has been viewed over 10 million times, and it's not just the loons on the internet. james tracy is a tenured professor at florida atlantic university. take a look at what he wrote on his blog. while it sounds like an outrageous claim,
parallel here for a previous two-term president. check this out. this is ronald reagan's first-term portrait and this is ronald reagan's second-term portrait. put those up, side by side. that is how president reagan went from portrait one to portrait two. start of term one to start of term two. now look at president obama. see similarities there? it's not like every president does this. just reagan and now obama. i think people make too much of the political parallels between obama and reagan, but aesthetically, you kind of can't make too much of this one. in this case in the evolution of the official portrait, i think you can make as much of this parallel that you want to because that's kind of an uncanny thing, isn't it? the newport rat is out. the new term is about to start. we here at msnbc and everybody in the news business is gearing up for inaugural weekend coverage. this will be my second time covering an inauguration. we'll have the whole schedule for you of when everything happens and when it's going to be on tv. that's coming up a little later on in the show tonight.
running down rabbit trails that neither ronald reagan or william f. buckley would ever run down is what's causing this party problems. i think i'm a very conservative guy, but i think my party has gone in a direction that's deeply disturbing to me on a lot of issues especially this one right now. >> traditional this conservative means you believe in institutions and holding them together and holding society together. it's about keeping order. it's about opposing disruptions and radicalism. maybe this is too much like shooting ducks -- >> no, no. can i make a point on that, though, really quickly though? >> sure. >> this is what's most disturbing to me. i said it before when i came out supporting a ban on assault weapons. you know, for me this issue used to be a symbolic issue. but after newtown, after colorado, after oregon. after everything that's happened it's not about symbolism anymore. and when i really get into a debate and ask a question that the president asked, why? and when i really get into a debate and ask a question that the president asked, why? nothing conservative about
them, this is ronald reagan speaking, urging them to listen to the american public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacture of military-style assault weapons. >> oh, quoting their hero. the logic is so simple, even a child can understand it. and many children do. the president was accompanied today by young people who wrote him letters asking for changes after sandy hook. one little boy named grant wrote dear president obama. i think there should be some changes in the laws with guns. it's a free country, but i recommend there needs to be a limit with guns. please don't let people own machine guns or other powerful guns like that. i think there should be a good reason to get a gun. we should learn from what happened to the people at sandy hook. p.s., i know you're doing your best. maybe the children know more than we do, as a society. the president has an obligation to these children and he does not take it lightly. >> in the letter that julia wrote me, she says i know that laws have to be passed by congress. but i beg you to try very hard.
or support the second amendment, well, that would suggest the same of ronald reagan, of antonin scalia, of clarence thomas, of justice roberts, of samuel alito, all of these hardcore conservatives who have said that the second amendment is not about protecting somebody's right to have military-style assault weapons. >> so the question is, you've got the power of the nra versus the power of the emotional force, richard, that you were talking about. and kelly, the president outlined 23 executive orders. tell us about those. but first, what do you make and what are you hearing on capitol hill about the possibility of this legislation as it stands, as he presented it, going through? >> reporter: well, one of the things i think we really have to watch are senate democrats because we know that the house, run by republicans, is not going to jump to take any specific action. speaker boehner's office says they're going to wait and see, what does the senate do and then consider it. so that's sort of a real signal that there won't be any action on the house side. so if you look at senate democrat
the states. the states created the federal government. >>> that was ronald reagan on january 20th 1981. i remember watching that with my father. my dad just kept saying so much that my mom finally said george, shut up i heard it the first time. my dad kept saying if he lives long enough, he'll change the country and the world. he was right. that's what's so exciting about these days mika. so special. i remember lying in a fetal position on the floor after bill clinton won in 1992. >> that was a special day. >> thinking my world had come to an end. i just -- i loathed the guy. but i remember watching him deliver the inaugural address. just for a split second i said maybe, maybe -- and i think that's the magic of every inauguration. >> in all your years, you've learned to love him. >> i wouldn't go that far. >> oh yes, you would. >> we like each other. >> you should see them together at the clinton global initiative. makes me want to puke. welcome back to a special edition of "morning joe." >> i'm trying to be upbeat here. hope springs eternal on this day. >> it sure does. lo

saw throughout the first term. very similar to what ronald reagan dealt with during his eight years. personally, the public really likes president obama. 74%. but his policies, again, more people disapprove of the policies. 49%, than approve of them there, at 47%. so what about the next four years? sort of a mixed optimism, if you will. i go back to the idea of pragmatic hope. 43% optimistic. 43% pessimistic. 22% kind of mixed. and staying with the theme of word clouds, david, we asked folks to send a message to president obama. what would they like to say for his second term? and as you can see here, look at the most popular phrases. a lot of them have to do with the economy. fix the economy. create jobs. then there's stop spending. and then of course probably the most important that he will talk about tomorrow, compromise, work together. >> chuck todd, thank you very much. >>> let me bring in the rest of our roundtable here. joe scarborough is here from msnbc's "morning joe." adviser to obama 2012, david axelrod. chief foreign correspondent richard engel is here, safe and sound in
americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. >> ronald reagan gave the first inaugural address from the west front of the capitol. in doing so issued a manifesto of the area's conservative tide. >> in this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem. >> but the most recent inaugural address was that given by barack obama. >> this is the price and the promise of citizen ship. this is the source of our confidence, the knowledge that god calls on us to shape and uncertain destiny. this is the meaning of our liberty and our creed, why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration across this magnificent mall, and why a man whose father who less than 60 years ago might not have been served in a local restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath. >> wow. at its best, inaugural justice for a presidency, what a lead sentence does for a book. it captures the duration of what's to come. a great presidency often begins with a great statement. in the day that m
the name of ronald reagan, and still comes out of the thing as a socialist who -- >> a secret muslim socialist who wants to take your guns. >> perhaps the most disturbing trend since the newtown shootings has been the rise of conspiracy theorists who claim the whole thing was a hoax, part of an elaborate plan by the government to provoke enough anger to warrant rounding up your guns. websites, blogs, youtube videos have attacked the veracity of officials and official accounts of tragedy. they allege many of the people were actually actors. that the parents didn't show enough emotion and must be in the conspiracy. some claim if the shooting actually happened, there must have been more than one shooter and the government was involved somehow. one 30-minute truther video on youtube has been viewed over 10 million times, and it's not just the loons on the internet. james tracy is a tenured professor at florida atlantic university. take a look at what he wrote on his blog. while it sounds like an outrageous claim, one is left to inquire whether the sandy hook shooting ever took place, at
, was not elected. so he doesn't count. he was from michigan. jimmy carter from georgia. ronald reagan from california. the first george bush from texas via connecticut. bill clinton from arkansas and the second bush from texas. so 2008 in some ways watershed election. ends the 40-year period of sun belt dominance. and there were issues that were critical in the politics that developed, that came out of the sun belt. they tended to have a conservative cast to them. tended to be oriented around issues of strong national defense, of an opposition to unions and a defense of free enterprise politics. and also it's in the sun belt in the south and southwest, that we see the rise of what -- by the 1970s we'll be talk about as the religious right. the rise of evangelical involvement in the process. so national defense, he was a staunch anticommunist and played an important role in right wing anticommunist politics in the late 1960s, one of the things that led him to switch parties in 1964. he was a key figure in opposing labor unions and did so long people like barry gold water. early in his caree
mean with ronald reagan, he had iran/contra, and that really pulled -- you talk about being able to accomplish things, that really got in the way of him trying to accomplish anything in the last couple of years. and then monica lewinsky thing just absolutely hobbled bill clinton. >> took over. >> he couldn't do anything the last two years. he was totally focused on protecting himself and defending himself. so i'm not saying that obama will get himself into something like that, but you just don't know what's going to happen. you don't know -- and you don't know how you're going to react. >> james? >> the randomness of political reality is important to keep in mind. two other things to focus on. i think this administration has more political capital than it has accessed because this coalition of voters that put him back in office is really a broad constituency. they've got to speak to those folks to the left of them. very important. the folk on the right, intractable folk in the congress, i don't think -- there is no honeymoon for those guys. they're back at it. he has more politic
candidates who could carry even massachusetts. think eisenhower, think ronald reagan. lately, they can't get much closer to the northeast than ohio. not even that, the last two times, it's lots of people living in it that's become foreign territory to the gop. last night, as i watched the united states house of representatives vote on aid for hurricane sandy economic relief, i was reminded what's happened to the gop. and since, it's the fight against aid for people. last night, it was aid for hurricane victims living in the northeast. does anyone think it will stop there? the mood of the guns over people policies increasingly vote against people. why? i cannot figure. to paraphrase an old saying, guns don't vote, people do. i have a feeling there are more americans with strong feelings about those first graders up in connecticut than they do for their wild bunch out there worried about the black helicopter sweeping down on their front lawns. we've seen the horror of crazed killers with semi-automatic weapons armed with big-capacity clips. we still haven't caught site of those darn helicopter
ronald reagan used to confuse movies with reality. whatever happened to the right wing, conservative notion of law and order? here you have these sheriffs and state legislatures around the country, certain red states, saying we will arrest federal law enforcement officers if they enforce the law. the people who sometimes put their lives on the line to protect us. and we're talking about in such disregard. this is what happened back in the '90s when the same crowd was talking about jack buddha thugs and it led, in some ways, toward oklahoma city. this could be heading towards frightening times with this sort of rhetoric. >> let me say this. this is the anniversary year of the march on washington, dr. martin luther king, who his holiday will be on monday when the president is inaugurated. in the famous speech he made, i have a dream, he referred to a governor whose lips drifts with the words of interposition and nullification. that is the words that we're hearing dripping from lips today. interposition and nullification. maybe when they said the president was trying to be a king, maybe
of office for the first time. >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear -- >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear -- >> and it with news 1981 when ronald reagan was taking the oath on the steps of the u.s. capital word came that 52 americans who had been held hostage for 440 days in iran were on the way home. and moments later, the newly sworn in president reagan revealed the news to congress in the statuary hall. >> and now the conclude the test with thanks to almighty god, i have been given a tag line, to get-off line that everybody wants for the end of a toast or speech or anything else. some 30 minutes ago, the planes bearing our prisoners left iranian air space and are now fr free. so -- [ applause ] >> so, we can all drink to this one, to all of us together, doing what we all know we can do to make this country what it should be, what it can be, what it always has been. >> seven days later the former hostages were back on american soil. they landed at an drews air force base and greeted by family and friends and the new vice president, george h.w. bush. >> promises made and promises b
